Renault R29

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

writeoff R29?
Impossible, check cockpit head-protection, making it R27 at the latest.
Monocoque is definitly an R25, R24 has the wrong leading edge on the top of the sidepods, and R26 and onwards have the wrong engine air intake.
The rest of the car is make-belief though :).

Renault's PR guys make an excellent case for cost-cutting. They seem to cobble together pieces of random cars, cobbling together a Frankenault and painting it with their most recent terrible livery. :p
